                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I could not but notice the fine record for 
I CAN'T BRUSH YOU (4-1-0) after their first round of combat.  May the gods of war 
favor you in RODEKI!  COMB caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
it skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, DEAD MAN WALKING put down SCHMOOZULA, causing 
him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has BIG 
DISAPPOINTMENT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 
die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
